80-85 days. This heirloom from the Ukraine was collected in 1993 by Seed Savers Exchange. Very popular on Island of Krim in the Black Sea. Melons ripen to a yellowish-gold and the white flesh has a very high sugar content, a favorite among heirloom gardeners and growers alike. Ripens early, even in Russia.

Review:

My husband and I absolutely love this melon. The flesh is very, pale green (almost white) and has a firm, watermelon-like texture. It is super, super sweet. I am a diabetic and this fruit has such a high sugar content that I had to limit the amount I ate. It raises my blood sugar just as much as candy. CFW is very prolific. I have 5 vines which have allowed us to have all we can eat AND give away. It's mid August and the vines are still flowering and setting new fruit. No disease problems at all and they are perfect for trellising. Fruits are ripe when they are mostly bright yellow. They tend to fall off the vine when ripe so slinging is necessary when trellised. CFW, as well as all melons, are heavy feeders. I fertilize with an organic, low nitrogen fertilizer (Tomato Tone) every two weeks. And I give them a nitrogen boost once monthly. CFW is delicious and has a unique flavor and texture. These will always be in my garden.

What are the pros? Not huge vines, sweet fruit

What are the cons? small fruit

Review:

No trouble germinating indoors. Transplanted out well. I planted it on my compost heap and the vines spread well but didn't overwhelm the garden. Ripened early in my cold climate. Multiple yummy fruit, looks like honeydew inside but tastes more like cantaloupe. I saved the seed and will be growing these every year.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? didn't grow

Review:

Seed planted directly into the ground around June 1. Sprouted and put up a few leaves. Then it stopped growing and turned yellow and never recovered. Root development was poor. Other cantaloupes nearby thrived. Kohlrabi planted in the same spot later thrived.

What are the pros? turns golden when ripe, slips

What are the cons? susceptible to 2-spotted mites

Review:

This melon is very sweet and richly flavored with a firm but melting flesh. It is very easy to tell when ripe because it turns a golden yellow and slips from the stem. The melons are small but the seed cavity is small and the flesh is good right down to the rind. The rind is very hard almost like a winter squash, in fact it is hard to tell these melon from the small spaghetti squash I grow, except they are smaller. Some of them are only about the size of a softball. There are a lot of them, however.They keep very well on the counter top and in the fridge. They ripened earlier than any of my other melons which was about 85-90 days after setting out.

What are the pros? Tasty, Easy to find, bright

What are the cons? None really

Review:

These melons were very delicious. Easy to find amongst the vines because they ripen to a pretty yellow. They grew as well as all the other melons in the garden. I wouldn't say they were significantly early, but one of the first to ripen in my Western Washington garden.
